Saturday Sampler 2018

TIME: 10:00 am, repeated at 1 pm

INSTRUCTOR: Camille Wideman

FEE: $10.00 to register.  Bring back your completed block each month at one of the 2 class times, and you receive your next block free.  Each time you fail to be present with a finished block, you will pay $10 for the next block.  This is a 16 block program.  If you complete your block each month, you will have received all fabrics and patterns for only $10.  What a deal! 

This year's program is Be My Neighbor.  It was designed by Pat Sloan for Moda 2 years ago.  We think you'll love the colors and fabrics.  Each block will include a town building and sometimes trees, etc.  See the first block above and at the shop.  When in the shop ask Camille to show you the quilt's design.
